  • Australia Becoming the 51st State

    A tit-bit from the Sydney Morning Herald's backpage:
    By far the best tip-off we had after our hard-hitting investigation into pollies' mobile phone ringtones was this: the minister of all things foreign, a fellow named Alexander Downer [foreign minister], picks up to the theme song of Team America: World Police.

    The 2004 tune, much of which we can't print here, was penned by the creators of SBS's [tv network] animated South Park series and - give or take a couple of vowels - its chorus goes a little something like this:

    "America, fork yeah! Coming again to save the motherforking day, yeah!

    "America, fork yeah! Freedom is the only way, yeah."
    Innocent, or indicative of something deeper? :D

    Wrong. Canada is the 51st state. Puerto Rico is the 52nd and Australia is the 53rd. :D

        Puerto Rico is a territory not a state. Canada is NOT a state.. we have enough idiots to screw ourselves up in government.. Sorry i just hate when ppl refer to Canada as a State.

          haha - when I clicked, I got this for the headline:

          :row__572:




          edit: this reminds me of a funny thing my friend said - in a bar in Barcelona the conversation somehow drifted to politics... anyway, someone suggested that in the spirit of brotherhood and all that, that there should be a single world flag... My friend (trying to get a rise out of them) responded, "yeah! we can just use the American flag - we'll just throw another star on there for the rest of the world!" .... it was probably a "you had to be there" moment, but everyone pissed themselves laughing...

                Canada, as viewed from America. :)

                Principles of good Sandbox Etiquette:
                Assume good faith - Be polite, please! - Work toward agreement. - Argue facts, not personalities. - Concede a point when you have no response to it, or admit when you disagree based on intuition or taste. - Be civil. - Be prepared to apologize. In animated discussions, we often say things we later wish we hadn't. Say so. - Forgive and forget. - Recognize your own biases and keep them in check. - Give praise when due.

                Treat others as you would have them treat you

                  You forgot england. We get to be the 51st state because of the "special relationship". The rest of you can get in line behind us to be assimilated by the borg.

                      LOL at the Onion article and "The End".

                      Before the US FedGov got power-hungry and turned into a State itself, the US was essentially a defense pact between cooperating sovereign entities, hence "States". It's original job was to protect the States from each other and from outsiders, and to protect individuals from their States.
                      Dude, seriously, WHAT handkerchief?

                      snooggums' density principal: "The more dense a population, the more dense a population."

                      Iliana: "You're a great friend but if we're ever chased by zombies I'm tripping you."

                        I'm Puerto Rican dude. I know PR and Canada aren't states. The sarcasm is apparently lost in the translation to text.
